Ok, thanks for that.
the car is sick at the mo, lost first and second gear so just waiting to get all the parts together and fit a new box!!
Seats will be the first job to do when I get it back!
Hmm how low have you gone? I still have loads of room for spacers, have you considered rolling the arches? Have you had any knocking? since putting the TT arb on I've had no problems :)
Got a new filter as my old s2k one looked filthy... however this time a horrendous green one turned up lol. Oh well!
I need to replace mine also, they collect so much ****e, an your best getting the TT arb mine only cost me £30
spray it black mate, it looks quite good black
Yeah I just had a peek on eGay but cheapest one is about £65 so going to wait till a bargain comes up, this one is near me but looks the same as the standard ARB so probably wouldnt solve my problemo: AUDI A3 SPORT 2001 BREAKING FRONT ANTI ROLL BAR | eBay
Very sketchy moments in a ridiculously tight multi story carpark in chelmsford but somehow didnt scrape!? Also been over several speed bumps with no scraping but the ride is very harsh... thats the price you pay I guess!
Pahahahaha, know your feeling. Mines the same, very sketchy car park.
There's a chap in Cambridge that's breaking 2 s3s at the moment mate, that's what I'm running on mine. His name is ed. If you buy one off him, let me know as I can collect it for you as I go past there most days
I'm rolling on the S4 rep these days but I think they may be a bit too angular for the 8L, seriously been thinking about going back!
Cars looking good mate don't normally like rs6 wheels but yours really suites them I personally want sum s3 Avus wheels
Just bought a mk1 TT ARB to stop the funny noises. That'll be going on soon with a little (alot) of help from Munch ;)
S4s look good on there.
Got myself a TT ARB on the way now so hopefully get that fitted soon then im dropping the front a little bit more. Then changing thermostat and getting a wheel refurbed (had an intimate session with the curb). Then thats it pretty much done. Unsure about getting it mapped on such a high mileage (150k).
Got a squeeky belt on start up... wears off after a few seconds.. is this most likely aux belt or cam belt? Also squeals if I go through a puddle!
Mate, I really wouldn't worry about the high miles if I were you... I'm now on 156k and it's been mapped for about 70k of it's life. . . In fact this is my third mapped A3/S3 with 130k+ on the clocks among hundreds here on the forum with high miles and big power. Just keep up regular oil changes (about every 5k) with a decent oil and you should be sweet. Also ALWAYS make sure it's warmed up properly before you drive on boost, just remember the temp gauge actually lies and oil takes longer to warm up that coolant anyway.
yea, I'd imagine it's the AUX belt. I'd be worried if it was the cam belt! Just use some silicone spray on it, and I've actually heard that honey also does the trick... Don't take my word for that tho! lol
(p.s sorry, I will stop plastering your thread with pictures of my car one day! lol)
did you sell the spacers bud ?
if not talk to me £££££
Am I right in thinking that my standard drop links will work with this ARB?
Hey Baz, yes buddy I sold them on the bay, got 40 quid for them with the bolts, only paid 29 from eBay just got to hunt around!
How well do 8Js fit on your A3 mate? Ive got a set of MOMO GTR alloys ET35 8Js im waiting to put on. Not sure if i would need spacers them though. What do you think? Cars looking damn nice by the way dude! :thumbsup:
Replaced spark plugs and sorted my hunting idle issue by cleaning throttle body again but unplugged it and let it reset this time woohoo!
I do love how your car looks. A lot! Very simple and clean :thumbsup:
No worries! That's what I'm going for too.. except mine shall involve the Rota Grid's I picked up on the weekend! :P
I hope they will look awesome and that I'll be able to pull them off! 18" 8.5J fronts, 9.5J rears. The rears look incredible with the concave on them...
Nice looking car
Too many pictures of my old car in this thread, makes I sad!
Car looks very well Pube man, Like it a lot :)
I miss having an A3 daily !
I love where your car sits Pube, I took your advice on board about AP coilovers but in the end decided on bilsteins with apex springs. Very nice looking car though, good job.
